ServiceController.ServiceType Property

Definition

Gets the type of service that this object references.

[System.ServiceProcess.ServiceProcessDescription("SPServiceType")]
public System.ServiceProcess.ServiceType ServiceType { get; }
Property Value

One of the ServiceType values, used to indicate the network service type.

Exceptions

An error occurred when accessing a system API.

The service was not found.

Examples

The following example uses the ServiceController class to display the device driver services on the local computer.

array<ServiceController^>^scDevices = ServiceController::GetDevices();
if ( scDevices->Length )
{
   int numAdapter = 0,numFileSystem = 0,numKernel = 0,numRecognizer = 0;

   // Display the list of device driver services.
   Console::WriteLine(  "Device driver services on the local computer:" );

   for each (ServiceController^ scTemp in scDevices)
   {
      // Display the status and the service name, for example,
      //   [Running] PCI Bus Driver
      //             Type = KernelDriver
      Console::WriteLine(  " [{0}] {1}", scTemp->Status, scTemp->DisplayName );
      Console::WriteLine(  "           Type = {0}", scTemp->ServiceType );

      // Update counters using the service type bit flags.
      if ( (scTemp->ServiceType & ServiceType::Adapter) != (ServiceType)0 )
      {

Remarks

The service type indicates how the service is used by the system. The value of the ServiceType property represents a set of flags combined using the bitwise OR operator.
